Big boy's all done.

New Jersey paper: We "blew" Chris Christie endorsement in 2013 - CBS News

let's hope the GOP goes with Ted Cruz or Rubio in 2016

So I recall many around here, from left and right, saying that the GOP needs to realise that if they ever want to be elected again they have to stop pandering to the extreme right.

Rick Santorum disagrees. He thinks they should take a leaf out of Tony Abbott's book - he's our current PM, and perhaps the most conservative one we've ever had - and hold onto those more extreme values.

Quote:
Former senator Rick Santorum says Mr Abbott was able to win government while sticking to his right-wing Catholic principles.

"Australia is clearly to the left of us on most of these moral cultural issues and yet Tony Abbott is a conservative Catholic who didn't change his positions one bit, but was able to go out there and connect with average voters," Mr Santorum told Fox News.
Rick Santorum praises 'hardliner' Tony Abbott, says US conservatives could learn lessons from him - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

You know how a lot of people don't understand how bad the fashion of their era is going to look 20 or 30 years down the road? That's that haircut.
